Engelland (undisclosed) will not play Saturday against the Wild, Derek Willis of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports. Engelland isn't known for his offensive ability, but he actually picked up two goals and an assist in his last three games, making it an anti-climactic way to end the season. Patrick Sieloff was called up from the minors Saturday and likely will serve as Engelland's replacement.
Engelland's participation in Saturday's game against Minnesota is questionable due to an undisclosed injury, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 reports. It's unclear when Engelland suffered the injury, but it comes in the midst of an elite defenseman-esque streak for the veteran. Over his last three games, Engelland has potted two of his three goals on the season and four of his 12 points, while skating to a plus-8 rating. If Engelland's unable to go Saturday, Calgary may need to reach into their farm system for reinforcements.
Engelland registered a goal, an assist and a plus-3 rating in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Kings. Engelland surely breathed a sigh of relief on Tuesday night when he finally lit the lamp after not doing so in his previous 19 games. That stretch had been a pretty rough one for the 34-year-old, as he only tallied four points in those 19 games. He continues to be quite the hit machine, though, racking up 43 of those bad boys during that stretch.
Engelland (personal) will be in the lineup Saturday night against the visiting Blackhawks, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The FAN reports. Engelland was absent for the last three games in order to be with his family as his wife gave birth to their second child, as reported by the Calgary Herald. With Engelland back in the fold, the team has reassigned Tyler Wotherspoon to AHL Stockton.
Engelland (personal) won't play Thursday against the Wild, Sportsnet's Pat Steinberg reports. Engelland -- who remained in Calgary to be with his wife for the birth of their second child -- is slated to rejoin the Flames in advance of Saturday's home game against Chicago.
